Ralph Fiennes suffers from anxiety attacks

ralph-fiennes-the-museum-of-modern-art_3938250 Even though he is a famous movie star, Ralph Fiennes sometimes feels insecure and has anxiety issues.

The actor suffers from panic attacks and he often wakes up in the middle of the night in a sweat.

He told Britain’s Esquire magazine: ”I have huge anxiety attacks. I’ll wake up early in the morning with my brain anxious about something and I don’t even know what it is, just a general sense of profound uncertainty. It’s from the unconscious, I suppose, fears about existence. A weird twilight zone. We feel we can organize our lives and have an order that we can control but really we can’t, it’s always paper-thin and underneath there’s this lurking chaos. You think, ‘F**k! ralph-fiennes-21st-annual-hamptons-international-film_3905374This could come at me at any moment!’ ”

Fiennes also says that his anxiety sometimes affects his social life as meeting new people can be difficult for him.

”I get accused of zoning out of conversations and gazing into the middle distance, which I do when I’m somehow not at ease. I often feel a bit lost in social situations and that’s when I can button up. I have moments – not ever y day – when I feel myself retreating. Later on I’ll think, ‘That person meant well. I didn’t need to be like that’,” Ralph explains.

    I know what anxiety is by my self. I also have this anxiety attacks that bother Ralph Fieness. Still, I would never have thought that such a famous person with so many rules and active social life with a great income would have attacks of anxiety about to being sure about tomorrow and meeting new people. This just makes no sense to me! Well, maybe this is just a matter of some people and it doesn’t depend on the social status or income.
